Chattahoochee Hill Country
On June 19, 2007, the dedicated efforts of its residents to attain cityhood came to fruition when the City of Chattahoochee Hills became a reality through an overwhelming referendum vote. This primarily rural community encompasses a previously unincorporated area of South Fulton County about 30 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta. It has a population of approximately 2600 people and covers just over 37,000 acres, bordered by the Chattahoochee River to the northwest. Though considered a part of metro Atlanta, Chattahoochee Hills has retained its rustic character and quaint charm. As part of its City Charter, provisions like the Comprehensive Land Use Plan were included to protect and maintain that heritage. Progressive zoning assures that 70% of the City’s land will remain permanent greenspace, allowing for development to occur in designated villages and hamlets while preserving family farms and land holdings that go back for generations.
We are often asked what makes Chattahoochee Hills so unique and special, and there are many answers:
Its close proximity to Atlanta and one of the world’s busiest international airports
Its “deliberately” rural charm only 35 minutes from Midtown
Its Georgia Scenic Byway routes that make it a favorite spot for avid bikers and runners
Its horse farms, stables, and first rate equestrian events
Its organic farming and farm to table dining opportunities
Its rich cultural experiences
And, perhaps most of all, that wonderful sense of community and belonging, that cordiality and welcome that only comes from a people deeply rooted in the land they call home.
